Leftist Swedish feminism: “We disparage patriarchy while at the very same time encouraging it.”
All I will say about this is, violence against anyone for whatever the reason outside of self defense, police actions and military response in defense of the country, is not justified.
Equally disturbing is the mentality of donning Islamic headgear by self identified feminists in support of women, many of whom are forced or brainwashed into wearing the garment, and who often fall victim to family members for refusing to wear it. Showing solidarity with with those who either promote it or are subjected to it, ….is sheer stupidity.
STRAIGHT FROM THE ‘DUMBER THAN DIRT’ SQUAD………
We require a security policy based on human security. Freedom from violence is a basic human right, the ultimate responsibility for ensuring this right, the state has. Instead of throwing away billions on the military needed the resources to secure everyone’s right to freedom from violence and sexual abuse.
- We demand that those who become victims of hate crime is taken seriously in their contact with the justice system. It is unacceptable that so many people become suspicious or neglected because of their gender, their religion or their skin color. The judiciary, prosecution and police authorities must actively work with standard critical power critical, anti-racist and gender-sensitive approach.
- We require broad efforts to prevent hate crimes and discrimination. The cause of hate crimes is widespread discrimination in society that need to be met in all arenas. Measures must be directed against those who discriminate. At the same time, the knowledge of human rights increased. All school staff must receive training in LGBT issues, gender, anti-racism and normative critique.
We stand side by side with the sisters who are exposed to hate crimes and we stand up for religious freedom in Sweden. We defend the right to wear the veil as well as not to wear the veil. Everyone has the right to control her body.
